Good morning,

Just wondering if any of you guys have tips on helping my son how to read and write?

My son is autistic and has learning difficulties on top, they have also mentioned that he maybe dyslexic aswell love him. 

With maths he's amazing, I've been told children with the condition maths makes sense to them. I have been teaching him all over lockdown and he's absolutely amazing I'm so proud of him he's really trying you know.

But the issue is if he can't do something he really bests himself up about it, at the moment I've been making him memorise words and read them back etc. He's starting to read pages on his own now, but was wondering if there any tricks I can do to really get him going

Not sure how old your son is but presume he's not at school yet or you could ask them?  The National Autistic Society could perhaps offer advice or local contacts

I saw a program years ago about dyslexia, and someone described it at the letters moving around the page like ants. His case was helped by pink tinted spectacles (seriously) and I have heard of that more recently, so worth looking into.

@actd I will look into this actually, thank you for advise. I have a feeling he is because he does get his letters confused etc. Definitely going to look into this thank you
